Dissertation: The difficulty of the ecological novel
Dissertation category: Any
Short summary: Difficulties of creating fiction narratives that discuss climate change in realist novels.
Detailed summary: Focusing on literature, I will research various genres of fiction writing including dystopian fiction, postcolonial magic realism, children's fiction and ecocriticism. The roles that news media, religion, philosophy, politics and economics takes, impacts on ecocriticism, and crucially our culture for a consequent effect on the creation (or not) of the ecological fiction novel.
